Luis Garcia believes Atletico are capable of winning a UCL trophy and has joked they’re owed after striking out in two finals.
Atletico made it to the final of the 2014 and 2016 finals, only to lose on both occasions to Real Madrid.
The colchoneros are nine points behind Madrid in the La Liga, but are at the top of their group in the UCL.
Atleti’s best chance of obtaining silverware this term and Luis Garcia sees no reason why his old club can’t get their hands on the trophy.
“I don’t see why they cannot go on to win a Champions League,” Garcia
“They have made a place as one of the three top teams in La Liga as well. No one was expecting them to go all the way to the final last season, leaving all the big teams like Barcelona, Bayern behind.
“They did that again in 2014. So I feel confident that they will do it again. The 2014 loss must have been the hardest one. But last year as well they played very well but couldn’t get it. I feel the Champions League owes one cup to Atletico!”
